Pirates Vs. Marlins Recap: Miami Wins 6-2, Splits Series With Pittsburgh

The Miami Marlins bats came alive in a big five-run fourth inning, which lead to a two-game series split with the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. After struggling to get timely hits on Monday night, the Fish capitalized in Game 2 behind the continued raking of Hanley Ramirez. The Marlins third baseman had three hits, included two ripped doubles that each knocked in a run. Ramirez opened the scoring in the first inning and then capped off the big fourth inning against Kevin Correia with the Marlins' sixth RBI of the night. Both John Buck and Omar Infante also had two-RBI nights.

Miami starter Josh Johnson overcame some early first inning trouble cruised through a lowly Bucs lineup to wrap up his first win in his past 13 starts. It had been more than one full calendar year but the big righty went seven innings, allowing just six hits while fanning six Pirates.

Miami will now host the Braves for another quick two-game series before starting interleague play this weekend in Cleveland.
